Do not fret because of evil men
or be envious because of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently before him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret - it leads only to evil.
For evil men will be cut off,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
A little while and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.
But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace.
"When evil seems to be winning, submit to God.
Put off irritation...envy...and anger.
Let's give God the sovereign right to deal with evildoers in His time and His ways."
~Pastor Tim Lampley
